D Magazine Highlights Aldous\Walker’s $21 Million Win for Man Left in Vegetative State Following Surgery

A $21 million verdict in a case of botched surgery at Baylor University Medical Center is the subject of coverage in D Magazine.

In “Jury Awards $21 Million to a Man in Vegetative State After Surgery at Baylor University Medical Center,” trial lawyer Charla Aldous, who represented her client along with law partner Brent Walker said, “It is the most bizarre thing I have ever seen.”

Ms. Aldous is discussing her firm’s client, Carlos Rojas, who broke his leg while on a job hanging Christmas lights. To repair the leg, doctors had to perform surgery requiring anesthesia, but after the operation, Mr. Rojas was unresponsive.

Experts at trial testified he suffered a brain injury caused by a lack of oxygen during the surgery and the jury found the hospital and anesthesia provider U.S. Anesthesia Partners negligent.
